Youth Leadership Forum 

YLF students and participating staff and sponsors at the state capitol in Little Rock July 17, 2014

YLF is an innovative and intensive leadership program for high school students with disabilities

throughout Arkansas. With the implementation of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA),

youth with disabilities have more opportunities to become contributing members and leaders in

society. However, many challenges remain. YLF is designed to assist students with disabilities

in developing leadership skills and using resources that can help them face such challenges and

become full members of society. YLF 2016 will be July 11-July 15, 2016, at UCA, in Conway,
